Practical information & general conditions


What's the aim of Spotting Bruges photo tours?

  • The aim of Spotting Bruges is to provide you an exclusive souvenir of your visit to Bruges, which consists of pictures taken on one or several spots during the walk with your local photographer. Each spot is carefully selected by the photographer to obtain the best possible images. 
  • While walking in the city, your photographer will also give you some local tips.
  • The aim is not to give participants a lot of historical information about the city. Such tours are organised by the "Koninklijke gidsenbond Brugge" and by the Ambassadors of Bruges


Who can participate?

  • Tours are open for:
    • indivuals
    • groups of 2 - 4 people. 


When can you participate?

  • The tours are only organised during the weekends (on Saturday and on Sunday), during the day.
  • The tours can also be booked during Belgian school holidays:
    • Easter holidays: the 6th of April - the 22th of April 2019
    • Summer holidays: the first of July - the 31th of August
    • Christmas break: the 23th of December 2019 - the 5th of January 2020.
  • Exceptionally, tours can be organised on other moments. Contact us for further information.
  • To obtain the best possible results, we advise you to do the regular and royal tours in the morning (when it's calmer in the city center).

What happens with the pictures taken during a tour?

  • The pictures taken during the tour will be professionally developed.
